A Tribute to Mike Company 3rd Battalion 7th Regiment 1st Marine Division

Mike Company 3/7, 1st Marine Division was in Vietnam from 7/1/65 to 10/12/70; known as “A Company called Mike” or “Medevac Mike” because of the casualties that Mike Company caused the enemy and received in return.  While in Vietnam, I was assigned to Mike Company from May to September 1968.  I held my own.  On September 29th, 1968 I was blinded in combat and received a Purple Heart.  Since 1990, Mike Company has reunions every year.  Attending these reunions since 1993, I learned that it wasn’t any easier before I arrived with Mike Company in Vietnam; nor did it get any better after I left.  Mike Company was a humbling experience.  I learned the value of life and the sobering experience of death through Mike Company.  I watched Marines around me be more courageous than I could ever imagine.  As the anger and revenge built up within me I was wounded; at the same time as I felt my heart continue to harden against the enemy.  I left Vietnam with a numbness inside of me, but with a motivation I never knew.  I am in awe of all those who have served with Mike Company.  All of what I’ve done since Vietnam is dedicated to them.  They are my motivation.
